New functionality was developed few days before Ethereum Merge.
In order to demonstrate its enthusiasm for the upcoming Ethereum Merge, the global technology company Google has developed a brand new countdown timer.
Google “Ethereum Merging” or “The Merging” for a countdown timer. This estimate includes difficulty, hash rate, and merging.
A animation shows two delighted pandas rushing toward each other with their palms extended; the pandas will come closer as the Merge approaches.
Sam Padilla, a Google Cloud engineer, tweeted Friday that the timer was “a wonderful little surprise” and a chance to show thanks for “years of labor.”
He agreed that Google’s search and laboratories did the main work, but he took credit for “kicking off” the idea and debate that led to the timer’s acceptance.
As the day of the Merge draws near, he joked that the pandas are becoming more accessible, but he added, “But you didn’t hear it from me.”
Within Google Cloud, on May 6, 2018, Google launched a Web3 team with the intention of advancing the company’s ongoing work in the crypto space.
